As my friend says, “Woop tee Do!”
This is exactly what I thought when I just saw a post on Twitter. I did stop to think, I wonder what I did last year on the last Friday of the year. I have not a clue. And in that respect, unless something major happens today, I will probably not have a clue next year as to what I did today.
I suppose I can get on Face Book and check out the memories from this date a year ago, but that wouldn’t be the last Friday of 2016.
Being honest with myself, I had to stop and think of what I did last Friday. We drove to Alabama to pick up the newest member of our family, an eight week old Boston Terrier. The rest of this week has been a blur.
Being honest again, this year has been a blur. Sold a house. Bought a house. Moved from Arizona to the mountains of North Georgia. Made new friends. Had old friends visit. Furnished and decorated our new home. And just like that, the years is almost over. Bam!
Does it really matter what we did the last Friday of any year? I believe all that matters is that we treat each day as if it is our last. That we treat every friend as if today will be the last time we talk to them or visit with them. That we treat everyone like we want to be treated. You don’t have to like a person to be kind to them. And just because you don’t like them doesn’t mean you have to spread hate about them. Like my mother use to tell me, “If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all.” Shouldn’t that apply to our tying messages and post on social media?
Make today the best day you can for yourself and everyone you come in contact. You will all enjoy happier days, whether it’s the last Friday of the year, our your last day on earth.
